Frank Miller's "Xerxes" Cover, Prequel to "300"

Posted: December 29th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Frank MillerSubmit Comment
Back in June, Dark Horse Comics unveiled a look (pictured) at Frank Miller's "Xerxes" graphic novel, which is a prequel to his "300" graphic novel that was turned into a feature film, directed by Zack Snyder. Today, Dark Horse released a brand new cover for the prequel and you can now check it out below.

Miller previously revealed that the graphic novel takes place ten years before "300" and that it "starts with the Battle of Marathon. The lead character is Themistocles, who became warlord of Greece and built their navy. The story is very different than '300' in that it involves Xerxes' search for godhood. The existence of gods are presupposed in this story and the idea is that he's well on his way to godhood by the end of the story."

He added that Themistocles is the complete opposite of Leonidas, but the "300" character does appear in "Xerxes." Meanwhile, Snyder is planning to develop the film prequel after the "Superman" reboot.

In the world of comics,
there is Ed Brubaker, Warren Ellis and Alan Moore ....

then there's *sigh* Frank Miller.

Frank Miller : the Brett Ratner of comic book writers.

@Cinemaisdead

You're more likely to see The Spirit 2 or How can I fistf*ck the deceased, decomposing corpse of Will Eisner more like a puppet, than I did the last time ?

You're better off telling Frank to write the screenplay for the remake of Robocop, seeing as how well *ha!* his adaptation of RoboCop 2 and 3 did back in the 90's.

f*cking hack.

Not really into this Xerxes movie, never liked 300.

Frank Miller is a one-hit wonder who simply won't go away. He dubiously earned his near-household name after publishing Batman: Year One.

But from there, like many directors (Kelly, Shyamalan) and songwriters/singers (Gibson, Clarkson, Jimmy Eat World, Pearl Jam) his output has decreased markedly in quality.

We are left to judge his creations more by their comparative awfulness and less by
how far from perfect they fall.

So, given how low to the ground he now slithers, as evidenced by his latest and hopefully last Batman foray, I expect Xerxes to be more muckracking money-grabbing and far less the explemplary exposition he singularly once produced.

Looks sweet.

Nice to see him back at it.

Ed Brubaker is a fine comic book writer, but you've got to be kidding if you think he is anywhere near as revolutionary as Frank Miller has been. Wolverine, Daredevil, Batman--Miller re-invented those character. And Dark Knight Returns and Year One stand as two of the greatest and most influential comic book stories ever put on paper. And Born Again has served as the blueprint for every Daredevil story written since. And you look at Robert Rodriguez and all the hype he got over Sin City. Well, that was basically a panel-by-panel live-action copy of Miller's book. Everything was already there, done by Miller, all Robert did was shoot it.

Yea, he f*cked up and he's been in a bad way for a while, but the man was as important to the industry as Moore, perhaps even more since his books affected main-stream characters, where Moore stuck to the lesser known characters (Miracle Man, Swamp Thing) and he is definitely more iconic than Ellis or Brubaker. The man is a legend, no matter how far he falls. And this is coming from someone who doesn't like him much.

"Frank Miller is a one-hit wonder who simply won't go away. He dubiously earned his near-household name after publishing Batman: Year One."

He did DKR before that, and the only reason he got that far was because of the great success he had with Wolverine and Daredevil. And 300 and Sin City were kind of a big deal. It's easy to hate on him because ASB sucks and he did that terrible Spirit movie, but he was aces at one point. Give him that much.
